Symmetry And Stability - Science and Spirituality TV

Edward R Close, PhD, explains why symmetry is necessary for stability in TDVP, the Close/Neppe Theory of Everything.

Spirituality is something even harder to define than consciousness itself, because it is an aspect of consciousness that transcends matter, energy, brain and mind. It is a mistake to try to define it in terms of any specific religious context or doctrine. Rather, it should be defined in the much broader context of the transfinite substrate of Primary Consciousness. It is an awareness of one’s subtle connection with the beauty and grandeur of Reality. It naturally fosters love and compassion for all living things. It transcends time and space.

The a priori assumption that no conscious intelligence could have existed before organic life evolved, is not a scientific hypothesis, because it is not falsifiable or provable. It is just as much a belief as the belief that there is a God. The later belief, however, can actually become a scientific hypothesis when the vague, undefined words ' a God' are replaced with the phrase 'some form of 'primary consciousness' and consciousness is included in the mathematical model of reality along with mass and energy. It is understandable that some scientists have confused organic life with consciousness, but there is ample evidence from quantum mechanics data and relativity that a broader form of consciousness operates at the quantum level, and always has.


In 1714, Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz, probably one of the most intelligent people in human history, declared that the most important question of all, the question science should resolve first, is: “Why is there something rather than nothing?” Why did he say this? Because the basic laws of nature: Newton’s laws of motion and the laws of thermodynamics tell us that there should be no universe at all!

Modern science has largely ignored the most important question, posed by one of the world's most respected scientists nearly 300 years ago. What is that Most Important Question and is an answer to that question possible?
